INTIMATION BY THE SULTAN


LONDON, Oct. 25.

Fresh troubles of a serious nature are reported to have occurred in Armenia.

It is stated that there has been an outbreak at Erzingjan, in the Turkish proviuce of Erzeroum, resulting in conflicts between the Turks and the Armenians, in which 60 of the latter were killed.

LONDON, Oct. 26.

The Standard this morning publishes a telegram stating that the Mohammedans have burned a village near Ismid, about fifty miles east of Scutari, on the Asiatic side of the Bosphorus. The message says that all the inhabitants of the village were massacred.

The ambassadors of the foreign powers at Constantinople have warned the Sultan that the recurrence of those outrages on the Christian inhabitants of Turkey will be a serious danger to the Ottoman empire.

The Sultan has assured Sir Philip Currie, the British ambassador at Constantinople, that he is firmly determined that the reforms in the administration of Armenia and Asia Minor shall be throughly efficient, and that the European powers will retain the right to object to the appointment of incapable officials by the Porte.
